A Tramadol addiction can be hard to reverse without the proper, medically-supervised treatment program. The prescription painkiller is a narcotic-like medication, used in the management of moderate to severe pain. The extended-release version is meant for moderate to severe chronic pain that persists around the clock. Tramadol is marketed under the name Ultram. Addiction to prescription painkillers is becoming more common everyday and more people are seeking out responsible detox programs that help manage withdrawal. If you stop taking Tramadol suddenly or gradually taper your use, withdrawal symptoms can set in quickly, sometimes within hours of the last dose. The onset of withdrawal symptoms signals that a physical addiction to Tramadol has developed.
Tramadol Withdrawal Symptoms
Withdrawal symptoms vary from person to person and can depend on factors including length of use, amount of time since last use and the severity of the Tramadol addiction. More commonly reported symptoms can include strong drug cravings, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, anxiety, mood changes, sweating, chills, tremors, hallucinations, insomnia, breathing problems, muscle and bone pain, palpitations and agitation. More serious withdrawal symptoms can develop, especially in those who have used Tramadol for a long period. These can include potentially life-threatening seizures. This is why it’s so important to seek appropriate help for Tramadol detox.
Medical Management for Tramadol Withdrawal
There is no need to delay seeking help for an addiction to Tramadol or other painkillers because of a fear over the withdrawal process. Withdrawal symptoms can last weeks or months and should be medically managed to avoid serious medical issues. There are treatment options that can minimize the severity – even eliminate – Tramadol withdrawal symptoms. With the Waismann Method of Rapid Detox, withdrawal is medically managed to maximize safety, comfort and results. Our addiction and recovery specialists work with board-certified doctors and anesthesiologists to individualize drug detox programs for each of our patients.
Waismann Method Offers Opiate-Free Treatment for Tramadol Addiction
Don’t let a Tramadol addiction ruin your life. Our pioneering procedure, performed in a southern California hospital, uses intravenous medications to cleanse patients’ opiate receptors. This takes place while the patients sleep lightly under sedation. Once they awaken, they have no conscious awareness of the withdrawal that took place during the procedure. Our highly successful and humane treatment can reverse prescription painkiller addiction in a matter of days, getting you back on your feet quicker than other drug detox programs. And unlike some other facilities, the Waismann Method doesn’t believe in treating addiction with opiate replacement therapy. This ensures you will not have to deal with a second addiction and detox. Our Domus Retreat aftercare facility is also available to help guests continue their recovery in a posh and serene environment. Here, they can work on underlying issues and their physical, mental and spiritual wellness.
